As most of you have seen at this point, United States PostgreSQL is about to have elections for three board seats. The seats are currently filled by myself (JD), Bruce Momjian and Michael Brewer. You can read more about the election here. In order to vote, you must be a current member of PgUS. Unfortunately we haven't been as good as we should be about communicating expiring memberships to people. Most of our original members became members at West 2008. The majority of those memberships have now lapsed.
If your membership has lapsed, it is time to re-up. PgUS is now in a financial position to release two grants. As I mentioned in the keynote at West 2009, both of these grants will be awarded just after the new year. In order to receive grants from PgUS, you must be a member. We also need your continued support in financially supporting the U.S. PostgreSQL Conference Series, helping speakers when presenting in locations that require financial sponsorship, and general overhead including financial and legal services.
Below is a list of usernames of current members. If you are not on this list, you are not a member. You can re-join PgUS here. Oh and before I get 700 emails pointing it out, yes my membership lapsed. It will be resolved by the end of the day.
